Well that would be able to replace both the M/Y Bright Star and his P.180 / A319CJ... Hmm...

This would make an epic gunship of both the naval and aerial variety. Easily mount a couple Bofors 40mm and 106mm recoiless rifles on that thing.

Michele: Aww come on! Isn't it bad enough Voodoo made my yacht into a field hospital!?

Henrietta: Mr. Pagani, where do you want us to put these torpedoes?

Michele: Back on the damn dock!

I dunno... looks kinda fragile to be hanging any sort armament off. Boat wise it's definately one of those things that I wouldn't be comfortable taking for more than a quick weekend jaunt up the French Riviera.

The position of the tail fin/rudder is also worrying me regards landing and taking off. Either way it's awesome and kinda reminds me of what people thought aeroplanes would look like in the future during the early years of flight... and of course I'm a sucker for any sort of flying boat (radial engines prefered). Even if not this one, expect to see the odd seaplane rock up in J+M's adventures

A Question; one targeted mainly at our resident Boeing representative.

This is the in-flight seat-pocket card from one of your 777-300ER's.


I draw your attention to the prohibitions at the top of the page...I can only assume this means "no operating remote controlled cars."

Has this really been an issue? I know people will push the limits of stupidity whenever possible, but has this actually happened?

I would not put it past people since I have heard during the Safety Briefing on some airlines where they note R/C vehicles are not allowed.

Bottom line: if it's stupid and makes you wonder "Why on EARTH would they put this in here?" = Someone's done it.

As Terry Pratchett (I think) put it: if you made a large red button, and buried it in the deepest cave in the remotest place on earth, then put a sign on it that said "End of the universe button, DO NOT PRESS"... the paint wouldn't even have a chance to dry.

More to the point though, whether it has happened or not, now that the warning's there if someone is stupid (and I wouldn't put it past the human race at large) enough to try it they can legally say "we told you so".

Expanded from a chatbox discussion...



Kara:
Oh thank God, a jet. When Michele said you needed an extra set of hands in Sudan I thought we'd wind up flying something without first class.

Monty: That's not ours, here's ours now...

Spoiler:



Jethro: Actually we would have been ready when you arrived, but they had to send a second plane. The first one's over there...

Spoiler:

Monty: Oh don't look like that. It's got all the mod-cons: seats and everything.

Seen sitting next to the main taxiway at Port Gentil Airport, Gabon...presumably still there.

Glad to be of service *bows*

For the record, Monty isn't being mean here, at least from her perspective. She hates wasting time and it was just going to be quicker to knock Kara out than try to convince her to step onto a perfectly good piece of Soviet technology...

Monty: ...and it was either this or that bit of 2x4 lying over there.

Kara and Michele pay a visit to Boeing Field to look over Boeing Business Jets...




BMW designed a mock-up interior for a 787 VIP with a garage for a 3 Series in the forward belly hold, but it should be easy enough to put a Ferrari in there. Wink

Luxury aircraft are all very well, but Jethro + Monty's air transport often tends to be somewhat more... recalitrant.

Take the Wasp Juniors on the Goose they had in Panama.

(Ok, not a Goose, but it is a Wasp Junior and it is one of the videos I was watching when trying to figure out how to describe Jethro starting it)


Jethro: C'mon you cantankerous prat, fire.

Kara: Michele, you let Monty organise this flight didn't you?

Michele: You can tell?

Kara: Please, never let Monty organise our flights, sane people would have hired a helicopter. Or at least picked something newer.

Monty: I don't see what's wrong with this: they were going our direction. Four more bodies aren't going to overload the aeroplane. Don't worry, we're almost there.



Kara: I want to leave... but I don't want to get back on the aeroplane.

Kara: "How...quaint."

I personally found the pricing hilarious. $2500 a day? A modern 737-based Boeing Business Jet rents out for $10,000 an hour.

I did note that Etihad had taken out a full, wraparound, front and back page advert in the Financial Review this morning...

Unfortunately for those of us on the program, they only let the pilots aboard for these types of maneuvers...

That take-off climb is outrageous.
I had a fun one in a 757 leaving Keflavik in a snowstorm (the plow crews could only keep a limited portion of the runway clear so our pilot had to get speed quickly) but nothing like that.  I'd pay extra for such a ride.

Yeah, the 757 is a rocket-ship.

We were lightly loaded on a United 757-200 out of SEA and were instructed to "expedite our departure" because the UA 777-200ER to Narita was waiting behind us.

The Captain took full advantage of that.  Very Happy

Hey! That was about the same as coming in on a 737 from Houston to Tegucigalpa, Honduras. They did some tight turning to position through mountains to land. 45 Degree turns or more it seemed. It was a lot of fun. Got thrown around a bunch, made for a very interesting flight in.

Was slightly depressed we didn't have to do the same when we took off...though with over 3/4 of my missions team sick that may have been a good thing...

Anyway, that was really cool! Good

I wonder if that's the same team that did the 1994 replica of the Vickers Vimy and recreated several historic long distance flights with it.

I remember that plane... no idea if it's the same people though.

And speaking of things suitable for Monty transport duties: Qantas today released the first pictures of it's new retro-liveried 737-800:


Dear Qantas, paint them all like that...

...maybe if I bribe Kisk with enough gin he can work some magic on that end.

Well, there is that possibility as well. To be honest, it was more meant as a snide comment on Kara's part regarding what Monty considers an acceptable form of air-transport.  Razz

Italy's newest ride:



An Airbus A340-541 previously operated as A6-EHA and flown by Etihad Airways. Leased to the Aeronautica Militare where it will be re-registered as I-TALY.

Kara: Finally a real ride. Those A319CJs were too small for my tastes.

Monty: "More like too small to haul back all her shopping."

Kara: "I heard that!"
